Sleeping Cecil by CalamityChemist Sleeping Cecil by CalamityChemist
Sleepy Cecil...

Poor guy is exhausted--curled up right on the floor and fell asleep. No dignity, this one. (There are none of us who can say we've never done the same thing though, haha)

I thought I'd just play with lighting in this one. C: It was a good time. I might go in and tinker with some of the lines, but otherwise...here he is! c:

Somebody shake him awake--he'll sleep all afternoon if you let him. >:I

HE'S DRAWING A BIRD (and I thought it was Carmori, which is why this is all in caps :I) IN HIS BOOK.
Cecil is so d'aw i just wanna huggle him. ; w ; we'd get along so well, too; we're both socially awkward creepers~! :dummy: :heart: :love:
Psst, what're the words written in the book anyhow? I'd like to know. C:

He is indeed drawing a bird! And fff, he is pretty socially awkward for sure. XD

The words in the book are "Dear Journal, I'm not sure what to write..." c:

;__; This picture makes me so calm and sleepy, and tear-eyed for some reason. I want to stroke his hair and coo in his ear about how brave and what a good person he is. WHY DID YOU MAKE SUCH AN ADORABLE CHARACTER??!! :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:
Oh, and the blanket looks fantastic, with the light shining though! And his hair looks like feathers! :iconrlyplz: *stroke stroke*

And a phenomenal job you did with that lighting. 8D Cecil's pose is excellent. That is definitely a guy sleeping. Your hair always amazes me. I want to do hair like that! D8> Now, the lighting here is just amazing. The shading in the makeshift curtain, along with the grading in the books and on Cecil's head is so smooth and well done. The grungy feel of the floor and the window give this somewhat of a grungy and dismal feel, and despite this, the resting pose of Cecil gives this a sort of calm. You've outdone yourself, Chemist... again... XD

Haha, aww--I swear I'll never get over how nice your comments are. c: Thanks so much! I'm really glad you like how this one turned out. Sleeping poses have always been hard for me, so I'm relieved that you think it looks right! And the lighting was experimental, but seems to have turned out okay--hopefully I can continue to improve how I do my lighting. c: Thanks so much, again, Jiosen! <3

I swear, this man will be drawn someday because my love for him is too raw and obscene to keep internally. :iconimhorrifiedplz: Quite honestly, you almost murdered me today. I was daydreaming as usual during my bike ride and imagined an ENTIRE music video dedicated to Cecil. Then a car drove in front of me and I almost died. But I digress.
Oh god, Cecil, you look so absolutely adorable and at peace lying there like that; calm, peaceful, probably dreaming of something during your nap? So full of love you are, Cecil. :heart:
Good god, the ever-adored attack of your painting-like digital skills yanked at my heartstrings for the billionth time out of awe, Jen. The lighting, the atmosphere, everything about this piece is just PERFECT.
And although Cecil looks and seems like a dark character in such a warm world, the overall work makes it look like he was meant to be there. He was supposed to be there. HE BELOOOONNGGSSSS THEEEERE~
:love:
Keep up the great work, dude! ^^

Once again, Andi, you compliment me beyond what I deserve. XD :heart: Can't tell you how thrilled I am that you like this poor fellow, though!
Aww, you were imagining a music videooo--oh wait...oh gosh...Cecil-induced near-death experience. WHAT HATH I WROUGHT?! Wouldn't be the first time I've been involved in manslaught--I mean, ah...nevermind.
Cecil loves to dream. At night, during the day, while he's walking...man's got his head in the clouds. c:
Awww, man, you are too kind. :hug: It means a lot that you like how this turned out. I was kinda hesitant about it. :> Hopefully I can keep improving with this style!

You hit it right on the head, man. I made the scene a little warmer than it should be in this one, but even as it is normally, he's still 'darker' than his surroundings. But aaa, he beloooooongs!!:heart:

Same to you, Andi! c: Thanks again.

"Beyond what I dserv--" ARE YOU CUCKOO FOR COCOA PUFFS? Have you taken a deep look into your gallery, lately!? Man. I... I just have got to bow before her almighty majesty right now. *bows and break back* .... NOW look what you've done! I lie, I lie! XD But really. Cecil is just too great a character to leave alone. The second I checked out Hotel Haven and spotted the dahling my heart grew painful wings and fluttered away, he was just so great. His design, the style he was drawn in, HE HIMSELF.
Epic as hellfire. :heart:
And if you plan to improve then we better grab some bomb shelters in case of overexposure to awesome because so far I personally think your style is beyond wonderful as it is. You could get into a great art college with these pieces, man, and that's a no-brainer. Really, I think you should consider applying (if you plan to achieve an artistic major). :XD:
I love how it turned out. And you are welcome again. :hug:

Late reply is suuuuper late. Way to be on top of it, Jen. :I

...I will be honest, I am fond of Cocoa Puffs. Cuckoo? That may be going a bit far. Enthusiastic? Yes. I am enthusiastic for Cocoa Puffs, it's true.

But gosh, Andi, thank you. You don't know how much that means. I've had a rough time with this whole character-design business. I'm such a darn NEWBIE and I'm always questioning whether Cecil is actually any good, haha. So it means a lot that someone as talented as you would find him worthy of attention. c: That's a huge motivation.

And awww, you really think so? It's funny because...I'm just finishing my first semester up as a teeny-tiny freshman...and I'm actually an English major. And I do not fit in with them at ALL--they're so serious. XD The fact that I find myself drawing instead of taking notes in my literary theory classes speaks volumes...I'm really wondering if I should shift my focus to art instead.

You are fantastic. :heart: All there is to it.

And awwww. <3 He'd gladly open his eyes for a mug of cocoa.

Fff--haha, I don't know what he'd do! He'd probably be shocked beyond words that he HAD fans. Heck, even I'm surprised there are people who like him. XD
